I have given a lot of retrogaming love to the GameBoy over the years and any new GameBoy inspired game makes me break out in bouts of nostalgia.

I'm sure you will all be pleased to know that I've discovered an Android game called Tilt Planes vs. Aliens that has quenched my thirst for GameBoy related tomfoolery and it's actually a pretty cool game.

Retrogaming is best enjoyed using your favourite controller.

Whether that be a Joystick, Joypad or even a Gaming Mouse.

Over the years I have found that I can only play some games properly with one particular type of controller and if it isn't that controller I turn into a cack-handed jibbering idiot!

Read on to find out more about my favourite controllers and the games that they make me great at!

☆ My Retrogaming Video Games Bucket List ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Retrogaming for me only occurs on carefully planned days of the week. It means that sometimes I will only get a one or two hour slot to play with and in that time I need to utilise my time efficiently as i may only get one chance a week to play computer games.
 
With this in mind I have created a Retrogaming Computer Games Bucket List.
 
This list is intended to highlight 2 must play games on the various consoles or computers that I am yet to play.
 
My intention is to work my way through this list before I kick the bucket!!

☆ Unintentional Games Within RetroGaming Video Games ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Retrogaming

My retrogaming sessions usually concentrate on one particular game and I play it to complete every last part of the game before I move on….

When you play a video game solidly for months on end you begin to start looking at it in a different way…

It's normally at this point when I tend to start looking at potential for games within video games…

Trying to make up a game within a video game involves using the games mechanics to create a task or an aim that the developers didn't actually intend for…

Over the years I have created many of these sort of sub games with help from my friends and usually involving copious amounts of alcohol to get the creative juices flowing..

I invite you to read on and take a look at my favourite 3 examples...

Retrogaming All Nighters Are Few And Far Between For Me Nowadays But Back In My Computer Games Hey Day I Would Often Have All Night Sessions That Would Get Me Through To The Break Of Dawn.

Having Kids Means That I Have Less Time To Invest In An All Nighter But One That Always Sticks In My Mind Was An All Nighter Involving A C64 And A Horse Racing Game!

Last Week we gave you an insight into the wonderful world of Epic Manager with a look at the Kickstarter Campaign that has just launched.

Epic Manager as you'll recall is a daring new genre hybrid of RPG & Management Sim.... in essence its an RPGMS (not sure if that acronym will kick off but hey!)

Since it's launch things have started really positively as the games press has got right behind the project.....

The backers have been coming in steadily with the current total pledged with 23 days left is around the $12,000 mark...and counting...

Let's have a look what's been happening with an update from those dudes at MANAVOID....

When I think back to when I was young gamer there were 5 distinct experiences with 5 different machines that laid the foundation for my eternal love of Video Games.
It was these exposures to these legendary systems which meant that I am still a gamer today.

☆ "The Black Glove" - A Kickstarter Campaign With A Retrogaming Twist ☆ @day4nightgames #GameDev #GamersUnite #Kickstarter

The Bioshock Series as you probably already know is one of the most ground breaking set of video games that have been produced in this wonderful world of video games.

Each game a work of art and always trying to challenge you in a new way....

I adore the Bioshock games. They put you on edge and make you feel that your character is indeed mortal and underpowered (initially) against the in game characters. 

The Bioshock Games make you work hard for your right to exist in the game world and when you succeed it makes it all the sweeter.....

So imagine how excited I was when I came across this great looking Kickstarter from a group of Independent Game Developers who assisted with the creation of the Bioshock games!

This is the story of The Black Glove.........
